2021 Release of UCCE Positions

UC ANR is thrilled to announce the significant number of new UC Cooperative Extension (UCCE) Advisor and CE Specialist positions released for recruitment. Rebuilding the CE footprint, to address California's emerging and future needs, is made possible by the historic 2021-22 state budget increase.

 

UCCE Positions Released in Rounds

Vice President Humiston announced the following 41 UC Cooperative Extension positions were released for recruitment in four rounds.

Program Council identified the highest priority UCCE Advisor and UCCE Specialist positions from the list of recent departures/priorities and the remaining positions from the 2018 position call process that were reconfirmed/updated in 2019 as critically urgent. For the positions with numbers below, they are linked to their original proposals; the released position may have some minor modifications. 

The positions with no numbers in rounds two and three were identified as current, high-priority needs through discussions with UC ANR leadership groups, including County Directors, Statewide Program/Institute Directors, and REC Directors. Program Teams also provided input on priorities. These positions are linked to their Positions Vacancy Announcements.

The positions released in round four are part of a new partnership with the California Stewardship Network – an alliance of regional leaders who are committed to solving state’s most pressing economic, environmental and social well-being challenges. These UCCE experts will collaborate closely with members of the California Stewardship Network to accelerate economic recovery across the state by tapping expertise in broadband development, small-business acumen, agricultural technology and more. All the counties to be served by each position are listed. 

 

Round Four (November 10):

Round Three (October 15):

Round Two (September 10):

Round One (July 20):

 

The new 2021 CE Position Call was launched August 23, 2021 and will result in up to 70 more UCCE positions. See the separate web page for more information.
